The event takes place at Beech Hayes Farm near Churchinford on Saturday, March 8, from 10am - 12.30pm. This is a traditionally-run family farm, well known for the produce it sells locally. Little visitors will be able to enjoy being on a real working farm and coming face to face with some very cute inhabitants.

This event is free for children, and £3 for accompanying adults.
